Tradition Fishing Charters – 24'

Tradition Fishing Charters really does make the most of their location at the west of the Panhandle. With the nearby wealth of flats, inlets, and bayous, there’s always the option of exceptional inshore fishing. It also won’t take long to get offshore and to be at one with the sea, so captains of Tradition Fishing Charters invite you out to catch some excellent game fish, too. From Perdido Key itself, they know these waters better than anybody.

Riding a 24’ Kenner center console, you’ll be in complete comfort throughout your journey. The boat is powered by a 200 HP Suzuki engine and comes equipped with GPS and fishfinder, to make sure you’re on the fish as soon as possible. For shallower waters, the wireless trolling motor will ensure that you can sneak up on the undisturbed fish and catch sight of them to reel ‘em in.

You’ll target a range of species, including Redfish, Sheepshead, Flounder, and Speckled Trout inshore; while Cobia, Red Snapper, King Mackerel, and Spanish Mackerel are the order of the day offshore. Trips include rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures to make sure you’re prepared for a catch. Try your hand at spinning, jigging, popping, or even trolling! The crew will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home for lunch or dinner.

No matter if you’re a hardcore experienced tournament angler, a complete novice, or just looking to entertain the kids, Tradition Fishing Charters will provide an enjoyable experience on the water for all. They love nothing more than helping people make their first catch, so don’t hesitate to ask them.
